to put the show hack on a sound footing, and he surely 
did all that was asked of him. His new act is one of the 
novelties of the season, and there was not a dull 
moment while this clever artist was on view. The 
audience laughed and applauded with delight at his 
wonderful material. Opening as Saint Peter, he then 
appears in one with the brightest array of bits that the 
Palace has held in a long time. He won the hearts of 
all with his expert delivery and fun-making methods. 
More acts of this description would elevate vaudeville

3. Artists must not perch on the fence, paying dues to the 
White Rats (as they think, under cover) and expecting to give the 
members of this Association the "glad hand" when the smoke has 
cleared. The artist who pays his dues to the White Rats is a White 
Rat and excuses won't move the managers. 

4. The managers will get the names of those who pay their 
dues and will emphatically not book any of them. 

5. SOME managers have grievances against SOME artists and 
we do not dispute that there must be SOME artists out of many

Especially la It [me of Mr. & 



Mr. Kornblow'e estimate of the num

but as the author bases 1 "

ARTHUR H0RNBL 0W SAYS: 

All actors whose names will live after them have loved their art. 
They have loved It for Itself, not for the money or fame It earned for 
them. With Joseph JeRsrson and Edwin Booth It amounted almost to 
a sacred passion. When William B. Crane's wife, thinking her hus- 
band weary of the atage,.aaked him why he didn't stop acting, he re- 
plied: "Because I like It. I do like it. I may say I love it." Thack- 
eray wrote: "I have seen no roan In Ufa loving their profession so 
much as palmare, escept. perhaps, actors, who, when not engaged 
themselves, always go to the play." 

The love an actor has for his profession Is what distinguishes the 
true artist from the commercially a sctor, Not all our players are 
tailors' models. There are many on our stage today who are artists tn

"CLOSED SHOP WINS" (?) 



WHITE RATS LOSE 
IN OKLAHOMA CITY 



The White Rata have Bent 
the following circular: 

CLOSED SHOP WINS 

BOARD DECIDES I". FAVOR 
OF 

RATS ACTORS' UNION OF AMERICA, 
AC, &C. 

"Artrtt ration Board findings in our favor. Recom- 
t of motion picture oreia* 




and stage employees and a thorough trial 
Shop for actors, saying that it understands that 
such a contract with the White 
Union, the trend of the decision along these 
that they did not desire to strictly put this con- 
it the managers as a duty, but believe that a 
Is all we ask, should be given the plan. Ab- 
equllabte contract along the lines of 
the contract In universal use 




The facta are that the White Rats have lost their 
strike in Oklahoma City and that the Arbitration Board, 
instead of deciding anything, made two recommendations, 
and right here let us state that the reason why the Arbi- 
tration Board did not deeide anything was because they 
had not the power or authority to deeide, but only the 
: to recommend. 



Aa long as the White Rats were issuing statements 
broadcast why did they not publish the exact truth and 
is? The following is the recommendation 



of the Board at Oklahoma City as pertaining to the White 
Rat Actors' Union: 



"As to the proposition of the the* 



nothing but members of the White Rats Union, the Board 
does not feel qualified at this time to pass judgment on 
this Important Issue, by reason of the fact that Oklahoma 
City Is one of a chain of cities on circuits which are booked 
by fo.eign concerns or booking agents, located outside of 
the State, and we, therefore, doubt the feasibility of impos- 
ing upon the managers in Oklahoma City this duty." 



There v 



s also another recommendation, that If the 



t agreeable they might test, or try 
"closed shop" In vaudeville. 



out, the 



Mr. Graves Lee per, the Chairman of the Commission, 
made the suggestion from the bench that the agitator had 
too much brains for any one man, and suggested on ac- 
count of this over-abundance of brains that the agitator 
should incorporate same. We do not know whether the 
agitator is accepting the suggestion which concerned his 
over-abundance of brains, but we do know that the Man- 
ners absolutely rejected the recommendation for testing 
out the "closed shop" and the agitator left Oklahoma City 
with another rank failure added to his already long list of 
failures. 

The reason why the agitator picked Oklahoma City 
for his first strike was because the Oklahoma Labor Laws 
are about the most stringent and far-reaching of any State 
in the Union. After picking hia own fighting ground, chooB- 
ing his own weapons and taking plenty of time to map out 
his plan of a 
life, and that w 
into print with the circular headed "CLOSED SHOP WINS." 
He was making another bid for the Artist's money and did 
not have the nerve to sign the circular himself, but sticks 
the name of "Geoffrey O. Whalen" to the bottom of it. The 
agitator's bluffs have been called so often that he has re- 
cently been compelled to use the names of both the high 
and low officers of the organization on his publicity mat- 
ter. Not only has he run out of money, but he has 
run out of nerve. 

STRIKE OR NO STRIKE IN OKLAHOMA CITY, 
THE MANAGERS WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO 
WITH THE WHITE RATS.

which. In default of others, are rapidly becoming; the folic songs of 
Americana. The Idea back of this move Is that Immigrants learn 
corrupt English when attempting to master the picturesque phrase- 
ology of the black race. 

When the restless Instinct for change and reform lays Its hands 
: American songs It Is time to call a halt. Our duty to the 
Immigrant, though It la great and seldom discharged In full, does not 
Include the remodeling of the few distinctly native 
have. Our songs, just as they stand, belong to us. and should be left, 
alone. The Immigrant must learn his English on something else.

secret that I am telling now. I have It on very good authority that George M. 
Coban, who Is never a piker In anything, a short time ago sent a nice letter to 
Chauncer Olcott In which ho regretted that he (Cohan) had been unable to 
get the play promised him ready for the past season, which had compelled 
the affluent Olcott to lay oft for a season, a part of which be lolled around 
that millionaire resort, Palm Beach. Cohan then said (In the letter) that he 
took pleasurs In enclosing hla check for ■SO.DOO to compensate the aforesaid 
Olcott for hla loss of profits, etc.. concluding with a famous quotation: 



therefore, that I c 
human being, let n 
for I shall not pass 

I have not as yet met another carrier pigeon who was In the secret ai to 
what Chauncey Oloott's answer was. Being a millionaire himself, doubtless 
he was dee- lighted. . I hear that the new play that Mr. Cohen finally finished 
tor Olcott, which Is entitled Honest John O'Brien. Is a very big hit out of 
town, where It was tried out first in Detroit It la said to be based on the lire 
story of the late John Kelly, the former chieftain of Tammany Hall. 

I was talking the other day with my old friend, Oeorge Jordan. ot the 
firm of Sanger .& Jordan, the leading play brokers of this country, about the 
plays used In making scenarios for the moving picture makers. Oeorge has 
charge of this branch of his firm's business, and he ears that they have done 
so far about elghty-llve per cent of the gross amount transacted by all agents 
for dramatic authors and managers. They placed the services of E. E 
Sothern with the Vitagraph people as well as many others, He tells me that 
they offered Maude Adame the huge sum of !1B0,000 cash to appear before 
the earners. In Peter Pan and one other play of her repertoire, but she refused 
to consider it. This is the largest aum ever offered anyone In this country, 
with the sole exception of Cherlea Chsplln. I am In hopea that I can Induce 
Mr. Jordan to give The Billboard, over his signature, some facta and figures 
of this branch of the play agency business that ia such an Important factor in 
the making of screen subjscts. 



A well-known figure on the Boulevard Broadway Is Philip Mlndll, who

The orchestra of the Symphony Society, of which Mr. Damrosch Is the con- 
ductor, will range from 90 pieces as a minimum to 110 pieces as a possible

IT'S UP TO YOU, 
MR. ARTIST, Whether YOU 
WORK or LAY OFF 

YOU KNOW WHERE THE MANAGERS STAND 

If the White Rats are providing work for you by which yon earn 
your living, then it is your duty to stick to them the tame at the paid 
delegates and agitators are doing* 

The managers have repeatedly stated where they stand in reference 
to the White Rats Actors' Union. Every artist must do likewise. There - 
i be no sitting on the fence.' You are either on one side or the 



THE MEMBERS OF THE VAUDEVILLE MANAGERS' PRO- 
TECTIVE ASSOCIATION WILL NOT ENGAGE ACTS, ACTORS 
OR ACTRESSES AND PAY THEM SALARY IN ORDER THAT 
THEY MAY USE THE MONEY THUS EARNED IN VAUDEVILLE 
THEATRES TO HELP SUPPORT AND MAINTAIN AN ORGANI- 
ZATION ANTAGONISTIC TO THE BEST INTERESTS OF VAUDE- 
VILLE, SUCH AS THE WHITE RATS HAS PROVEN ITSELF 
TO BE. 



Apologies or explanations as to why you have been bluffed into 
paying dues will not be accepted. 

WATCH THE BILLS and you will shortly note the absence of 
rWhite Rats' names. ■'. . , ; 

DONT DECEIVE YOURSELF INTO THINKING WE DONT 
KNOW WHO ARE AND WHO ARE NOT WHITE RATS, AND 
WE WILL KNOW WHO PAYS THEIR DUES. 

:' We advise you not to forget that we -have a friendly working 
agreement and understanding with the National Vaudeville Artists, 
- which has enough members at present to keep every known vaude- 
ville house in America open, and we propose to give the members of 
that organization the preference in booking. WHEN YOU CAN 
SHOW A N. V. A. CARD, IT WILL MEAN SOMETHING.

OCTOBER 28, 1016. 



VAUDEVILLE MANAGERS ARE NOT 
AGAINST ORGANIZE D LABOR 

A statement is being circulated broadcast throughout the country by 
the White Rats that vaudeville managers are against organized labor. 

As to the truthfulness of that statement, there is no one better qual- 
ified to answer than the members of the different unions connected with 
the theatres. 

The friendly relations which exist between the Vaudeville Managers 
and the National Vaudeville Artists' Association conclusively prove that we 
not only approve of the right kind of organization among the artists, but 
that we are willing to support same. 

That the artist has finally awakened to the fact that the Vaudeville 
Managers* Protective Association mean business when they state that they 
will not engage any artist who is a member of the White Rats Is evidenced 
by the hundreds of letters received by the artists' representatives and our- 
selves, In which the artists state that they are not members of the White 
Rats and that they have automatically resigned from same by not paying 
their dues, which were due October 1st. 

The White Rats are endeavoring to make you believe that the Vaude- 
ville Managers' Protective Association la simply a dummy, or another name 
for the United Booking Offices and the Western Vaudeville Managers* Asso- 
ciation. 

For your Information the following booking agencies and circuits, and 
their clients, are also members, and in most cases officers, of the Vaude- 
ville Managers' Protective Association: 

The Pantages Circuit, Orpheum Circuit, Marcus Loew Circuit, Miles 
Circuit, Gus Sun Circuit, B. S. Moss Circuit, Nlion-Nlrdllnger Circuit, 
Felber & Shea Circuit, Columbia Burlesque Circuit, Wm. Fox Circuit, Inter- 
state Circuit, Jones, Llnlck & Schaefer Circuit and Rlngllng Bros.' Circus 
Enterprises. 

One. again, we desire to state that we have absolute knowledge as to 
who are and who are not White Rata. 




VAUDEVILLE MANAGERS' PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION.
